Homemade Vanilla Extract

Homemade Vanilla Extract

Make your own pure vanilla extract for an affordable and high quality vanilla flavor for your baking and cooking. It’s a simple technique that requires only two ingredients; vanilla beans and alcohol.

The only trick is that the vanilla beans need at least 8 weeks to infuse the alcohol. So if you do a lot of baking for Passover, now is the time to make your homemade vanilla extract (make sure to use Kosher for Passover vodka). It’s hard to find pure vanilla extract for Passover, what’s commonly available is imitation vanilla extract made with artificial flavors and chemicals.

But once you see how easy and affordable it is to make it at home, you’ll never settle for imitation vanilla extract and you may just start doing it year round as well.

    Thank you for the inspiration and reminder of how easy and cheap it is to make my own extracts. Last summer I had mint galore and so made mint extract which was easy and worth the wait for it to mature in the vodka. I actually think vanilla would be much more utilized in my kitchen so this is my next project!
